    本書收錄的論文梳理出早期中世紀研究相關的理論和方法。文章大致分為兩大部分,第一部分重新解釋特定的文本內在證據,第二部分則是提供從事中世紀早期研究更廣泛的新銳理論與觀點。
 
[Original description]
 
These essays which draw out theoretical and methodological issues related to the study of the Early Middle Ages are all by scholars based in the USA. The essays fall broadly into two camps, those which reinterpret specific pieces of evidence, and those which provide broader new theoretical perspectives on the Early Middle Ages. Of the former for example Bernard Bachrach re-examines Carolingian capitularies, and Constance Bouchard looks at Carolingian family trees and Genevra Kornbluth analyses a fifth-century crystal conch re-evaluating theories of ethnic identity. Among those essays at the wider end of the spectrum Charles Bowlus proposes that it is in central Europe that the processes which formed a medieval identity were played out, while Lisa Bitel argues that linear and narrative history, with its categorizing by period are fundamentally opposed to feminist interpretations of history.
 
關於編者:
Celia Chazelle is Department Chair and Professor of History of the Department of History, College of New Jersey. She has published a number of publications on early medieval Europe, especially the Carolingian era. Over the last several years, the growing inequities in the US have led her scholarly interests back to their starting point. Some of her projects concern modern issues of social justice and the distinctive perspective that medieval studies can offer on those issues, as her bookWhy the Middle Ages Matter: Medieval Light on Modern Injustice (2011) demonstrates.
 
Felice Lifshitz is an American academic historian, who specializes in medieval European history. She is editor-in-chief of the peer-reviewed journal History Compass, as well as serving on the editorial board for The Historian.
